“No daylight to separate us. Only kinship. Inching ourselves closer to creating a community of kinship such that God might recognize it. Soon we imagine, with God, this circle of compassion.” Gregory Boyle, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion
In a circle, everything changes. Imagine standing shoulder to shoulder with an equal view and position. Rugged individualism fades away, accepted power norms break, human connection expands, and kinship is born. This is our greatest strength. Our kinship knits us together with the unconditional, abundant love of God. True Kinship is unbreakable yet gentle, holding, honoring, and celebrating our differences while recognizing ourselves in the eyes of another.
